Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Verso Paper Corp., Memphis, Tenn., USA, received the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) President's Award for its partnership efforts in promoting sustainable forest management principles and initiatives in Maine.

The company has focused on supporting private landowners by creating a more cost-effective certification process and offering resources to support responsible forest management practices.

In 2008, Verso provided a two-year grant to the Trust to Conserve Northeast Forestlands (TCNF) to make third-party certification more accessible and affordable for small landowners in a six-state region in the Northeast. Verso continues to be a supporter of the certification programs in Maine and the Midwest, where the company operates four pulp and paper mills.
